Earlier today, we reported that Senator Dino Melaye who’s representing Kogi West in the Nigerian Senate was rearrested again after his earlier arrest on a Morocco bound plane.
However it was gathered that there is confusion at Area 1 roundabout Abuja, after thugs suspected to the loyal to the embattled Senator, rescued him and whisked him far from the fully armed Special Anti-Robbery Squad.
Aminu Omoye who shared the report, said the drama which began at 2.10 pm lasted for about six minutes with the suspected thugs, who in two Hilux van double-crossed law enforcement escort, jerked up Melaye and threw him into one of the van and speed off.
It was gathered that Senator Dino Melaye who’s likely to be paraded later tonite among other hardened criminals who implicated him in the crime that necessitated his arrest, was later rearrested and taken up to Zankli hospital in the Mabushi district of Abuja, because of the injury he sustained while wanting to flee.
Deputy Force spokesman, Aremu Adeniran, confirmed that Melaye was taken into custody while he refused to honour police summons extended to him in respect to an incident of illegal possession of firearms.
Adeniran in a record on Thursday stated that law enforcement obtained a warrant of arrest and trailed him to his house at Maitama, Abuja and cordoned off the place.
“He however surrendered himself to the police this morning for investigation on the allegations against him,” the statement said.
The authorities had alleged that Melaye contracted one Kabiru Seidu and his gang as political thugs, adding that the lawmaker met with the suspect on Airport road, Abuja inside his car in December, 2017 and gave him a case containing an AK47 rifle, two Pump Action guns and N430,000 to fairly share together with his boys, an offence which prompted the Senator’s arrest.
